Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2009 Acura TSX Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 20,000 miles


I purchased my Acura Tsx 2009 in June 2009. I currently have 25,000 miles, almost all of which are highway miles. Just before 20,000 miles the rear brakes began to squeak. I brought the car to the dealer and sure enough the front brakes are totally fine and the rear breaks need to be replaced immediately, for $241. (as a side note: I contacted Honda of America who claims to know nothing about the lawsuit Honda has agreed to settle over exactly this problem, "unreasonable wear due to defective design that caused excessive force to be applied to the vehicle's rear wheels."
